Pets and public transit: a progressive idea
Re: Transpo wants to allow small pets on buses and trains, Feb. 14.
We are very lucky to live in the capital city of a progressive country. As a city, we are culturally and ethnically diverse and community-oriented. OC Transpo, however, has lagged behind other comparable cities in North America in its stance on pets (and bicycles).The environmental, sustainable and economic benefits of public transport are well-documented. Tens of thousands of Ottawans daily rely on public transport because of economic marginalization, age, disability or a simple commitment to a green city.http://ottawacitizen.com/opinion/letters/todays-letters-war-abroad-transit-at-home
